    There is currently a high police presence at the asylum. I know its been done to death but if anyone was thinking of having a mooch there can be between 1 and 3 cars there and patrols around the local roads. This is due to idiots messing about and setting fire to the place now the school holidays have started.
    They are issuing dispersal orders covering the site, nantglyn and priory if you do get caught.

    p.s I haven't been caught but a friend has. Now to find somewhere else to mooch this weekend

    Been hearing this for so long now... do you honestly think the police would waste that much resource watching an empty building... 3 cars is very excessive

    It's ridiculous the amount of their resource they're wasting in my opinion. There are far more important things in the world than an empty building but apparently not to them at the moment. Went for a look couple of days ago and there was one parked near the nurses home and one passed us twice on the road

    It has been like this for months, the guy on Denbigh Vids mentioned it months ago how the local police have now added it to their patrol route, i guess if you are driving around the area, it's not exactly out of the way.

    I spent around 3 hours there the other day (15th August) and didn't see any police. I actually lost something and I am hoping for a safe return... I know it's a long shot but it means a lot to me and I really want it back - as it was from a friend of mine that died :( If anybody is ever there and you find a metal necklace charm of an elephant (approximately 2 inches and circular) then i will pay to have it back. It has no financial value. Thanks x

    Maybe it's quietening down. Hope so. If we get over there will keep eyes peeled for your charm just in case

    Apparently there are new real 'onsite' security now, three guys who patrol in a white van, backed up by regular police visits too.

    There was a video uploaded to youtube last week by the guys at DenbighVids who had some sort of run in with them (the secca, not the police) and one of them came away with cuts and bruises to his face.

    They did not post the video of what happened and say they won't, so it's all very vague as to exactly what happened.

    Link to Video HERE

    Been about two years or so since I've been there myself... maybe the council and developers are getting nervous of someone getting hurt there and delaying their plans maybe?
